When I was a little girl I used to pick the leaves from weeds to make play salads for my parents. What I didn’t realize then was that those leaves I picked were actually edible! It wasn’t until many years later, long after I stopped making dirt pots and grass dolls, that I discovered that the weed I was so fond of, was actually an herb. That herb was plantain.

Plantain is a common broad-leaf herb commonly mistaken for a weed. This healthy, hardy plant can be found in backyards across North America and is nutritionally similar to dandelion leaves. Used medicinally by cultures around the world, plantain is a common herbal home remedy for both nutritional and topical skin care applications.

What is Plantain?

Plantain is a common broad-leaf herb commonly mistaken for a weed. This healthy, hardy plant can be found in backyards across North America and is nutritionally similar to dandelion leaves. Used medicinally by cultures around the world, plantain is a common herbal home remedy for both nutritional and topical skin care applications.

Nutritional Benefits of Plantain

Plantain leaves are best consumed while still young and tender. They have a nutty asparagus like taste that is delicious when pan fried or when added to salads. A naturally healthy herb, plantain leaves offer the following nutritional support (source):

  • Maintains healthy cholesterol levels
  • Can offer relief from irritable bowel syndrome
  • Calms irritation from constipation or diarrhea
  • Offers relief from hemorrhoids
  • Helps with indigestion and ulcers
  • Supports healthy kidneys and bladder function

You don’t have to eat plantain leaves to enjoy their nutritional benefits, however. You can also get herbal support through tinctures for cleansing & detox. Or enjoy a natural herbal tea made using organic dried plantain leaves.

Plantain Infused Olive Oil! Plantains have anti-inflammatory,analgesic and anti-microbial properties. Because of this the plant is well suited at soothing insect bites and superficial wounds in addition to promoting healing. It also contains allantoin which is used to help with skin regeneration making it an excellent component in formulations created to help reduce the appearance of scars.

Skin Care Benefits of Plantain

In addition to nutritional support, plantain leaves are also lovely when infused in a carrier oil for topical skin care applications. There are a number of natural skin care products that would benefit from the inclusion of plantain herbal oil. These products include after sun moisturizers, burn relief balms, creams or lotions for eczema or dry skin, and anti-itch salves for insect and spider bites.

Dr. Christopher’s Stings and Bites, for example, is a top selling plantain ointment. It’s crafted with natural herb constituents like plantain leaf, extra virgin olive oil and beeswax to reduce and relieve the pain, swelling and itching caused by insect stings and bites.

Due to plantain’s herbal skin care properties, it’s often used as a key ingredient for the following topical skin care applications to promote skin health:

  • Minor burns and sunburns
  • Minor cuts, scratches and lesions
  • Rashes and skin inflammation
  • Psoriasis and eczema
  • Dry or chapped skin or lips

Formulating An Herbal Plantain Salve Recipe

Mountain Rose Herbs has a new roasted cocoa butter available that I really wanted to try. So I was really pleased when it arrived at my doorstep last week. This stuff smells amazing. I love that it’s suited for both food and cosmetic use.

As it smells so wonderful, however, I really wanted to create a product that would highlight the natural scent of the roasted cocoa butter. I also knew I wanted something to create a natural skin care product that would be suitable for seasonal skin care and gift giving. Therefore, in the end, I opted for crafting a simple plantain salve recipe with a cocoa mint scent.

I love the simplicity of my natural plantain salve recipe. It’s formulated using just five simple ingredients – roasted cocoa butter, plantain herbal oil, beeswax, rosehip seed oil and peppermint essential oil. The cocoa mint scent, of course, is naturally derived from the inclusion of the organic peppermint essential oil and roasted cocoa butter.

Roasted Cocoa Butter

The roasted cocoa butter wafers from Mountain Rose Herbs aren’t deodorized. Therefore they retain their natural cocoa scent. Expeller pressed from the roasted seeds of the cocoa tree, these cocoa butter wafers are naturally rich in vitamin E. They can be combined with cocoa powder to make chocolate, but also make a nice addition to recipes for lip balms, body butters, homemade soaps and salves.

Plantain Herbal Oil

While plantain herbal oil is easy to make, you can also enjoy the convenience of buying pre-made plantain herbal oil. This is especially helpful if you’re wanting to make natural skin care products using plantain herbal oil right away. Or if plantain is out of season throughout the cold winter months.

I used plantain herbal oil from Mountain Rose Herbs for my simple plantain salve recipe. An emollient oil formulated using solar infused plantain olive oil and vitamin E, this herbal plantain oil is especially nourishing for dry hands and skin. Crafted with certified organic Plantago major leaves, this natural herbal oil is perfect for gardeners, wild harvesters, climbers – or anyone else who works with their hands frequently. I also like to use this herbal oil, as is, on my dog’s minor cuts and irritation for a simple and safe natural remedy for his skin.

Rosehip Seed Oil

As I have both maturing skin, as well as skin that tends to dry out more in the winter, I also used rosehip seed oil for my plantain salve recipe. While this may shorten the shelf life of your salve somewhat, I highly recommend this unique carrier oil for its essential fatty acids. Popular in natural anti-aging skin care recipes, rosehip seed oil offers marvelous hydration for dry skin and a quick absorption rate. It can also be used solo as a natural daily facial cleanser or hydrating oil.

Beeswax

A key ingredient in homemade salve recipes, beeswax gives this plantain salve recipe its thick, rich texture. It also acts as a natural skin protectant while still allowing skin to breathe. In addition to its skin protectant properties, beeswax is also a humectant (meaning it attracts water to hydrate skin) and helps to temporarily reduce and soothe itching.

The beeswax pastilles from Mountain Rose Herbs have a deep, golden color and aroma. Globally sourced from less-developed countries like South America and Africa, their beeswax helps sustain the local economy of these areas while using traditional (less-modern) processing techniques.

Peppermint Essential Oil

A sweet, candy-like scented peppermint, the organic peppermint oil from Mountain Rose Herbs helps bump my simple plantain salve recipe into peppermint patty like status. This naturally steam distilled, certified organic essential oil has a fresh, very minty, hot, herbaceous fragrance with a vegetative back note. Perfect for all types of recipes including cleaning sprays, perfumes, aroma mists and natural skin care, this is a truly aromatic essential oil.

Peppermint essential oils is commonly included in natural skincare recipes and homemade salves and balms for topical pain relief, its anti-itch properties and the cooling sensation. It also supports circulation and can calm acne inflammation.

Simple Plantain Salve Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

1 oz. roasted cocoa butter
1 oz. plantain herbal oil
1 oz. beeswax
.5 oz. rosehip seed oil
20 drops peppermint essential oil

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for my plantain salve recipe. In addition you’ll also need a one or two cup heat safe glass measuring cup (such as Pyrex) and a utensil to stir your salve. I typically use a fork. You’ll also need containers for your plantain herbal salve. I used 1 oz. metal tins with rolled edge covers.

Once you’ve gathered the ingredients and supplies you’ll need, you’re ready to begin.

Start by weighing out the roasted cocoa butter wafers and beeswax. Combine in a heat safe glass container. Then heat either on the stove top using the double boiler method or in your microwave at 30% power until halfway melted.

Next, weigh out the rosehip seed oil and the plantain herbal oil. Add these ingredients to the same container as the cocoa butter and beeswax. Continue gently heating the ingredients until all of the ingredients for the plantain salve recipe have completely melted.

Once melted, remove the plantain salve mixture from heat and stir to combine. Then stir in 20 drops of organic peppermint essential oils.

Now pour your plantain herbal salve evenly into five 1 oz. tins. Allow the salve to cool completely then pop on the lids and it’s ready to go.

To use, simply apply to affected area as desired and massage in. You can also keep my plantain salve tucked inside your purse to use a natural cocoa mint lip balm throughout the year.

If desired, you can decorate the lids of your tins. I used nature stickers from Art By Sharell to decorate the lids of my plantain salve containers. However, washi tape also makes a fun addition and makes a simple, yet pretty package decorating idea.

Should you wish to sell the products you make from my plantain salve recipe, there is important information that you need to know if you live in the United States. Not only do you need to follow all FDA guidelines for labeling your products, you’ll also need to refrain from making any medical claims in regards to said product. It can all be very confusing. However, Marie Gale has a great book, titled Soap and Cosmetic Labeling, that can help steer you in the right direction.

Amazon Black Salve Recipe with Bacuri Butter, Buriti Oil & Volcanic Black Clay

This post is sponsored by Paris Fragrances. All opinions are my own.

Are you curious about some of the products found within the Amazon Rainforest? Keep reading to discover the natural skin care benefits of bacuri butter, black clay and buriti oil. Sourced from the Brazilian Amazon Forest, learn how you can use these natural ingredients to create your own natural Amazon black salve recipe.

Crafted using bacuri butter, commonly used as by local natives as a natural remedy for snake and spider bites, this natural ingredient from the Brazilian Amazon Forest plays a key role in drawing out matter from insect bites, stings, boils and even acne.

If you really take the time to consider how much medicine has changed since our grandparents and great grandparents were children, you’ll see a huge shift. We’ve moved from treating illnesses with nutrition and natural remedies to synthetic drugs developed in labs. One only needs to listen to the grocery list of side effects on drug commercials to begin to question, are these treatments really better for us?

When I was a kid, black salve would remedy a boil. Iodine would heal a wound. We fought colds with fire cider and whiskey. In short, we worked with what nature gave us. While medical advances such as anesthesia have led to many improvements in patient care, it’s important to develop a healthy balance between the two.

Natural Skin Care Ingredients from The Brazilian Amazon Forest

Recently, Paris Fragrances has facilitated my discovery of many beneficial skin care ingredients from the Brazilian Amazon Forest. Sustainably harvested for the fruits and other plant materials that grow there, the Brazilian Amazon Forest’s rich biodiversity is home to a number of indigenous remedies and medicinal plants.

Home to products such as Brazilian nut oil, bacuri butter, tucuma butter and cocoa butter that are native to the Brazilian Amazon Forest, these ingredients make wonderful additions to natural skin care products and home remedies. Further, as the commercial sale of these ingredients produces more income for those who reside in the region than both non-sustainable timber and cattle pasture combined, their use supports keeping the Amazon Rainforest intact.

I love shopping for these specialty ingredients from Paris Fragrances. Not only are the prices and quality of their products amazing, but they carry natural ingredients I can’t find elsewhere. I’ve also really enjoyed learning about so many new ingredients. However, coming up with new ways to use these sustainable products in my natural skin care recipes has definitely been the most rewarding part.

About My Amazon Black Drawing Salve Recipe

My Amazon black salve recipe offers an exciting twist off the traditional Amish black drawing salves. It’s similar to an Amish black drawing salve in that it contains activated charcoal. However, it also contains three ingredients found specifically in Brazil. These ingredients are volcanic black clay, buriti oil and bacuri butter.

Bacuri butter, which has been historically used by Brazilian natives as a natural remedy for snake and spider bites, plays a key role in drawing out matter from skin. This makes it an effective remedy for insect bites, stings, boils and even acne. While buriti oil, which is bountiful in vitamin A, promotes skin health to hasten the healing process.

Brazilian volcanic mud black clay, like bacuri butter, also works at pulling or drawing out moisture from skin. Naturally rich in silica, magnesium, calcium and iron, this clay is especially effective against acne and other problematic skin conditions. The black clay available from Paris Fragrances originates from the slow and millenarian erosion of rocks. This results in a diversity of minerals that are part of its natural composition. The clay is then sustainably extracted in the region of Minas Gerais in the South of Brazil. This is where the largest deposit of kaolin clay can be found, caused as a result of the erosion and sedimentation of rocks in the Serra do Mar.

Ingredients:

.75 oz. buriti oil
.5 oz. activated charcoal
.25 oz. bacuri butter
.25 oz. beeswax
.25 oz. black clay
12 drops rosemary essential oil
12 drops lavender essential oil

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for my Amazon black salve recipe.

Begin by weighing out the buriti oil, bacuri butter and beeswax into a small glass, heat safe measuring cup. Slowly heat using the double method until all of the beeswax has melted.

In the meantime, weigh out the activated charcoal and black clay into a separate container.

Once the beeswax, butter and oil mixture has completely liquefied, remove from heat. Add twelve drops each of both rosemary and lavender essential oil, then stir to combine.

Now add the dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients. Slowly fold them into the salve, then mix well to evenly combine the charcoal and clay throughout the salve.

Finally, pour the salve into your containers of choice. (I used 1 oz. metal tins, then decorated the lids with 1″ round stickers.)

Once your salve solidifies it’s ready for use! Use your Amazon black salve recipe as a spot treatment for acne, insects bites, bee stings, splinters, minor infections and boils.

(It’s important to note that my Amazon black salve recipe may stain fabrics it comes into contact with. Therefore, for use, it’s advised you cover the salve with a bandage after it’s applied to the affected area.)

CBD Natural Pain Relief Salve Recipe

Learn how CBD oil can help with fibromyalgia and other types of chronic pain, including arthritis. Beneficial for both people and their pets alike, CBD oil is an important adaptogen that helps to regulate our bodies state of balance. Plus learn how you can use CBD oil to make your own CBD natural pain relief salve recipe for everyday aches and pains.

Plus learn how you can use CBD oil to make your own CBD natural pain relief salve recipe for everyday aches and pains.

CBD Oil for Fibromyalgia.

Not all CBD oil is created equal. Trust me, I know. In my quest to find natural alternatives to pain relief for my fibromyalgia, I tried more than six different brands of CBD oil. While they all worked great at reducing anxiety and inflammation, finding one that tackled my worst pain was a challenge.

In part, this was because not all brands of CBD oil were geared specifically toward fighting pain. On the other side of that, fibromyalgia pain is tricky. This is because pinpointing the origin of fibromyalgia pain is challenging. Fibro pain moves throughout various points of the body. It’s not specifically in your joints. Or your muscles. It’s widespread and goes where it pleases.

What causes fibromyalgia?

It’s theorized that fibromyalgia, in layman’s terms, is caused by the brain misinterpreting signals from our body. So when we are particularly stressed, or in fear of a negative or painful outcome (whether physical or emotional,) our brains react to that stress or fear by sending out pain signals to various parts of our body. This is why, the majority (if not all) of the people who experience fibromyalgia pain, have experienced either a physical or emotional trauma at some point in their lives. The prior (or ongoing) abuse changes the way our brain handles stress and pain. (Source.)

This is also why, reducing stress and practicing meditation, can help fibromyalgia pain. And why, when we get upset, our pain increases. It’s also why the practices you learn through alternative treatments, such as the Curable app, can help reduce that pain. The methods primarily focus on retraining how your brain thinks and handles stress. It’s also why some fibromyalgia sufferers find relief with SSRI drugs. SSRI’s are able to reduce our stress and anxiety chemically. For others, however, an infection or an illness can also lead to the development of fibromyalgia.

Fibro is not well understood and many doctors are still uncertain about how to treat it. However, short and even long term use of synthetic opioid pain relievers, such as Tramadol, are both addictive and cause worsening severity of pain over time. I’ve found, personally, that pain killers absolutely do lead to increased sensitivity to pain. Therefore, when I stopped taking pain killers and instead focused on natural supplements that targeted inflammation, anxiety and healthy stress response, my pain actually decreased.

How does CBD oil benefit the body?

This is what led me to explore adaptogens. Like adaptogenic herbs such as ashwagandha, maca and holy basil, CBD oil is also an adaptogen. Or, basically, a non-specific remedy that increases our bodies resistance to a broad spectrum of harmful factors of different physical, chemical and biological natures.

CBD oil works because it interacts with our bodies through the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) or endocannabinoid system. Discovered in the 1980’s, the endocannabinoid system regulates the body’s general state of balance. It has a positive impact on mood, sleep, appetite and hormone regulation as well as our bodies pain and immune response. As such, the endocannabinoid system is an extremely important regulator within our bodies. However, few of us take steps to support this system as cannabinoids are not a part of our normal daily diet. (Learn more about the endocannabinoid system.)

In addition to its benefit as an herbal supplement, CBD oil also has numerous medical indications including anxiety, epilepsy, inflammation, cancer and chronic pain. And it’s not just for people either. All mammals, including dogs and cats, benefit in the same way we do. My 9 1/2 year old dachshund has been able to jump onto the couch again despite arthritis in his front knees since taking MediPets CBD Oil. They even offer CBD oil infused edible treats for both cats and dogs so even picky eaters can get the endocannabinoids they benefit from.

Plus learn how you can use CBD oil to make your own CBD natural pain relief salve recipe for everyday aches and pains.

How much CBD oil do I need?

I’ve found that taking a daily CBD oil supplement at a lower dose works best for long term maintenance of my fibromyalgia. It helps with anxiety, stress and insomnia. However, when I have a pain flare up, that maintenance dosage isn’t enough to bring my pain level back down. Therefore, for flare ups, I have typically take between a 50 mg to 100 mg serving twice a day until the pain dissipates.

The packaging of your CBD oil should indicate on the back how many mg are in a serving. Most oils offer between 6 mg and 35 mg per serving. The amount of CBD oil per serving is also indicative of how much more you’ll pay for your CBD oil.

If you can’t find the amount of CBD oil per serving on your packaging, you can determine the amount yourself. For example, if a 30 ml bottle of CBD oil contains 700 mg of CBD oil, simply divide the total amount of CBD in mg by the number of ml of oil in the bottle. Therefore, 700mg divided 30ml equals 24 mg per 1 ml dose, or one dropper full. While CBD 1500 mg will have 50 mg of CBD per 1 ml serving.

How you will react to CBD oil varies. It is different for everyone. Factors such as age, sex, weight and diet all determine how CBD oil influences your body. As does the way in which CBD oil is administered. Women tend to experience more pain relief from CBD oil than men. And applying CBD oil under your tongue versus consuming it by way of an edible product changes the time frame in which your body processes and reacts to it. However, for most people, you’ll notice the full effects of your CBD oil dosage about 45 minutes to an hour after consumption.

LT Pain Master Premium Hemp Infused Liquid

I recently had the opportunity to try the Lawrence Taylor Pain Master CBD Oral Drops from Diamond CBD. I am really pleased at how much this product helps with my pain compared to other CBD oils. Not only does it tackle my fibro flare ups, I was also able to use less of this CBD oil than other brands and yet also experience better pain relief.

Additionally, unlike other CBD oils, the LT Pain Master Premium Hemp Infused Oil is naturally sweetened. This makes it easier to consume (for those of us who don’t find the taste of CBD oil particularly enjoyable.) Simply place the desired amount under your tongue. (Then chase it with a glass of water.) Alternately, it can also be added to a vaporizer.

The Diamond CBD family of brands also sells the Lawrence Taylor Pain Master CBD Cream for topical pain relief along with a wide selection of CBD edibles, dabs, drinks and vape oils. So you can purchase everything you want from one reliable and trusted supplier. I’m also pretty excited about the Meds Biotech CBD & Turmeric Capsule Bundles, which you can purchase at a discount here.

Make your own CBD natural pain relief salve recipe.

In addition to purchasing pre-made pain relief products, you can also make your own CBD natural pain relief salve recipe. My CBD natural pain relief salve recipe is extremely easy to make. Formulated with neem oil, a natural analgesic (pain relieving) carrier oil, CBD oil and anti-inflammatory andiroba oil, this simple natural remedy is perfect for relieving joint pain and tension topically.

CBD Natural Pain Relief Salve Recipe

Ingredients:

.25 oz. neem oil
.25 oz. andiroba oil (or arnica herbal oil)
.25 oz. Diamond CBD Full Spectrum MCT Oil (in strength of choice)
.25 oz. white cosmetic beeswax
12 drops rosemary essential oil

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for this CBD natural pain relief salve recipe.

Weigh out and combine the beeswax, neem oil and andiroba oil in a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar. Slowly heat over low using the double boiler method.

Once all of the beeswax has melted, remove from heat. Then weigh out and stir in the CBD oil. Using a dropper or graduated plastic transfer pipette, add 12 drops of rosemary essential oil.

Mix again, then pour into two .5 oz. containers of your choice. I used two 1/2 oz. white polypropylene double wall radius jars for my CBD natural pain relief salve recipe. (You can find these containers at SKS Bottle & Packaging here.)

Once your CBD natural pain relief salve cools, screw the lids onto the jars and label as desired for personal use or gifting. (I used labels with a fake company name simply for demonstration purposes.)

To use, simply massage onto areas of pain as desired.

My roommate’s house is heavily wooded in the backyard. As a result, a multitude of strange insects, not to mention bird poop, tend to drop from the trees. So my car is often covered in odd looking spiders with turquoise pedipalps and slimy looking larvae. Don’t even get me started on the tree sperm. (Er, pollen.) There’s simply no escaping it.

Yesterday evening I walked back into the house after taking my dog, Jasper outside. I then retired to my bedroom to watch television with my boyfriend, Greg, after dinner. It didn’t take long to discover a black segmented insect of some sort crawling on me. My immediate reaction was to jump up and down and frantically brush off my body and clothing to rid myself of whatever this bug was.

Greg laughed at me and told me he really enjoyed my dance. But, he stated, “You would never survive in the deep South.” This then led into a less than favorable discussion about palmetto bugs – which are fricking huge flying cockroaches! – and the like. Unknown or simply gross insects are kind of my kryptonite. If they have the ability to spike my anxiety, or even worse, bite and potentially poison me, I want it gone as soon as possible.

The same can be said for toxic skin care products. It wasn’t that long ago that Johnson & Johnson lost a lawsuit claiming that their talc based baby powder caused cervical cancer. It was ruled that there was a link between talc and cancer in a court case involving 63-year-old Eva Echeverria. She later died of cervical cancer on Sept. 20, 2017. This ruling – and the award – was later overturned. However it does raise questions about potentially harmful skin care and beauty products. And whether or not we can trust the companies selling us these products.

As we discover more about the cancer causing and potentially toxic ingredients that the beauty industry has been putting in our beauty and skin care products over the years, it’s no wonder there’s a shift toward holistic skin care. With the average lifespan for women lengthening and the cost of healthcare rising, who can afford to get sick? (The cost for treating cervical cancer can run as much as $82,324 for just the first year of treatment!)

Luckily there’s been a shift in the skin care and cosmetics industry here in the United States towards more natural beauty products. A lot of these natural skin care products tend to be more expensive than their synthetic alternatives however. But you don’t have to pay a high prices tag for your health where beauty and skin care is involved. You can make your own easy holistic beauty & skin care recipes at home.

This natural antifungal foot salve recipe is a great way to naturally promote skin health. Used daily it can help to treat fungal foot infections as well as prevent their reoccurrence. Keep reading to learn how you can have healthier feet with this simple, all natural homemade salve.

Natural Antifungal Foot Salve Recipe - a natural holistic home remedy for athlete's foot, toenail fungus and candida with key ingredients like an antifungal essential oil, neem oil and coconut oil. This natural antifungal foot salve recipe is a great way to naturally promote skin health. Used daily it can help to treat fungal foot infections as well as prevent their reoccurrence. #antifungal

I love warm weather. Not only am I able to to be more active when the weather is nice, but there are so many more activities I can enjoy outside. It’s also a great time to chuck my tennis shoes for flips flops and sandals – or simply go barefoot at the river or by the pool.

If you're going to be spending time out on the water this summer, then you need to take extra care of your feet. Learn how to make this natural antifungal foot salve recipe to promote foot health and prevent athlete's foot, toenail fungus and even candida!

Just last weekend Greg and I were down by the river (on a very rainy day!) freeing a snapping turtle who’d wandered too far. We found the little guy in the parking garage for Greg’s apartment building not far from a very busy street. As it was dark outside when we found him, we took the turtle in to stay the night with us. We put him in a large bowl with a few water drops and some greens until morning.

Freeing a snapping turtle down by the river that we found in the parking garage.

The next day we ventured off to the boat access off the greenway just across from where Greg lives to let the turtle go. The river was insane that day as we’d had multiple days of rain. So I set the turtle in the grass about five feet back from the river so he wouldn’t get swept away. Seeming pleased, that little guy took a few steps then nestled himself beneath the grass so he could chillax.

If you’re ready to start embarking on your own warm weather adventures, you’re probably going to want to lose your shoes at some point. However, if you have athlete’s foot or toenail fungus, that’s not something you can hide if you aren’t wearing shoes. My natural antifungal foot salve recipe can help alleviate symptoms and prevent the reoccurrence of athlete’s foot, toenail fungus and even candida.

About My Natural Antifungal Foot Salve Recipe

There are many common natural antifungal ingredients that you’ve probably already heard of. These include things such as black walnut hulls, coconut oil, garlic, lavender buds, neem oil, wild oregano oil, turmeric and tea tree oil. These ingredients are found in many of the natural home remedies that are used to treat foot related fungal infections. However, holistic home remedy options for foot or nail fungus don’t have to be complicated – or even contain a lot of ingredients.

The base for my natural antifungal foot salve recipe contains a blend of just three holistic ingredients. Those ingredients are organic cosmetic beeswax, refined coconut oil and neem oil. Both neem oil and coconut oil have strong, proven antifungal properties. Because this salve contains neem oil, however, the addition of organic essential oils will make your natural antifungal foot salve smell a lot better. And these essential oils have their own benefits when used in skin care too.

What is Neem Oil?

Neem oil is a natural carrier oil. It is derived from the pressed fruits and seeds of the neem tree – an evergreen tree that is endemic to India. Due to it’s natural health and skin care benefits, neem oil has a long history of use in both Ayurvedic and Unani medicine.

Both a powerful anti-inflammatory and analgesic, neem oil also possesses antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. As such, it’s often used topically in natural skin care preparations to fight rheumatism, eczema, ringworm, athlete’s foot, cold sores, psoriasis, warts, chronic syphilitic sores, infected burn wounds, and slow-healing skin ulcers. Additionally, neem oil can also help to control various skin infections including scabies and candida.

Therefore neem oil is a key component of my natural antifungal foot salve recipe. Combined with the natural antimicrobial properties of coconut oil in addition to its antifungal agents, like monocaprin and monolaurin, this foot salve sets you up for optimal foot health.

AntiFungal Essential Oils

There are many natural essential oils with antifungal properties. In addition to both oregano and tea tree essential oils previously mentioned, many other essential oils naturally deter the growth of fungus. These antifungal essential oils include thyme, clove, lavender, geranium, chamomile, cedarwood, cinnamon bark, frankincense, lemongrass, pine, ravensara and rosemary.

Some of these essential oils can irritate skin, such as clove, cinnamon bark, pine, ravensara, cedarwood and thyme. Therefore use these essential oils with caution for topical applications. However many others are safe to use when properly diluted. You can use up twelve drops of essential oil per ounce. This is normally considered a safe amount for skin care applications such as my natural antifungal foot salve recipe. So feel free to craft your own natural antifungal essential oil blends to suit your nose.

(Pregnant women should avoid certain essential oils. Always consult your health care provider before trying any alternative or holistic therapies. It’s also important to note that the recommended usage rate of essential oils for children is much lower than it is for adults.)

Get started with essential oils with four basic skin care recipes.

Pour your antifungal foot salve into jars.

Pour the anti-fungal foot salve into two 2 oz. glass jars. Once cool and the salve has solidified, screw on the lids.

To use, simply apply this salve to your feet after bathing and cover with socks.

You can also use my antifungal foot salve as a spot acne treatment. It’s especially awesome at pulling out white heads that are still beneath the skin overnight. And, it does it without drying out your skin. So you aren’t left with flaky, red irritated skin that store bought acne medications with benzoyl peroxide tend to give you.

When not in use, keep your anti-fungal foot salve stored in a cool, dry location. Your foot salve should last up to 12 months when properly stored.
